Mee’s Japan Wish List

So Japan is officially the country I’ve written most about without actually having been there! This time Mee has teamed up with Air France to compile my wish list. The collaboration could not come at a better timing, because it’s very likely that I will finally go to Japan next spring. I know I’ve said that many times now, but I think next year might be really the year. So now is about a good time to compile my wish list.

As regular readers would know, I compile my wish list largely based on the World Heritage sites, so we have those, plus the dreamy Ghibli Museum. For first trip I imagine I can probably only spend time in Tokyo and Kyoto and their surroundings. Luckily there are quite a few World Heritage sites in the reasonable vicinity of the two cities.

You can click on the pins on the map to see my description of each destination. (The pictures are under Common Creative license from the net.) The team created this bespoke interactive map for me to post. I was worried they would get some locations wrong but they’re doing a great job :).

Dear Air France,
Will you fly me to Tokyo in spring 2016?
Best wishes,
Mee 🙂 ❤

That looks like a fun itinerary. Of the Japanese World Heritage Sites you listed, I’ve only been to Nikko, but it was amazing (and an easy day trip from Tokyo). I’ve heard great things about Kyoto (especially during cherry blossom season), so I’m sure it would be a trip highlight. You might also be able to pick up two more WHS near Kyoto: Buddhist Monuments in the Horyu-ji Area and Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range. Hope you can finally make it to Japan!


Oh, I’m sure you’ll definitely love Kyoto 🙂 And yes, there are a lot of UNESCO World Heritage Sites there and in Nara, too! (about an hour trip by train from Kyoto Station). I’m so excited for you! I’ve only been there once last April and saw the beautiful cherry blossoms and I can’t wait to go back! ^_^


Sorry, I went away traveling and somehow missed this comment. Thank you Chel for dropping by. I’m thinking whether I can visit Japan next spring for the cherry blossoms, but either way I hope it happens next year 🙂
